Mommy "Style": Tuesday I wore a repeated outfit of jean shorts and a t-shirt. Once this season is over, I'll have to retire that pair of shorts. They're finally starting to show their age. It makes me sad because I love those shorts. Sigh.
I'm sure I'll be wearing this into the fall. And probably winter with a sweater.
Accomplishment: Yesterday, Matt and I went over our budget. It's still a work in progress, but I think he's on board to watch our spending. Today, I went to the mall and only bought ONE thing: shoes.
High/Low: High: We've had a lot of luck with Phillip's potty training. I think that we're mostly there at least at home. Low: Last night, Baby Fred was very cranky and didn't want to sleep. I had to leave him in his crib for a little bit because he wouldn't settle which only made him more hysterical. I really hope this tooth pops through soon so it will stop bugging him (and me!).
Activities: Out of the house: yesterday: grocery store. Today: the mall: shoe store, lunch, carousel, and soft play space. Fun stuff at home: Yesterday: I've been experimenting with homemade laundry detergent. I'm not sold on the idea: it doesn't work particularly well on children's stains or workout funk. I thought maybe I should add in some more soap to the mix of baking soda, borax, and washing soda so I used the blender to cut up the soap. And then instead of running the blender through the washing machine I just added water to the soap residue. It made the best foam and the kids and I played with it. Here are the younger two enjoying sensory experience.

Today we've been running outside to fight the monsters as Transformers.
Menu: Yesterday: oatmeal, hot dogs, and then beef stroganoff. Today: oatmeal. gyro, and pancakes with fruit for dinner.
